|New Horizons Sees Pluto (Animation) - NASA/Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory/Southwest Research Institute|
The Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on New Horizons acquired images of the Pluto field three days apart in late September 2006, in order to see Pluto's motion against a dense background of stars. LORRI took three frames at 1-second exposures on both Sept. 21 and Sept. 24. Because it moved along its predicted path, Pluto was detected in all six images. These images are displayed using false-color to represent different intensities: the lowest intensity level is black, different shades of...

This approach contrasts with typical practices that result in an "equitable" allocation of resources or that adjust prior years' budgets for inflation but make no attempts at reallocati...
